Subject: Night before is y to an x

This was near the end of the 51 times the band played the original Fillmore, though the first of only 5 times in '69, as they had started playing more Fillmore West, and also Family Dog shows. The next night is one of the well-regarded '69s.

First Set (of one). Average set until an oops Mama Tried. The first real peak is the Dark Star which starts average but then gets good. '69 is a year chock-full of D-Stars (over 70) but this is in the top 15. 26 minutes including an embryo UJB jam (2nd one - the first time it was played as a developed song was just a month away). The rest is yer typical '69 with the next peak being a Lovelight that found its way onto Dick's #16.

A 2hr 27 min show and I guess there was no set break? There are drum solos in both Good Lovin' and The Other One. It's an average '69 show and not something to remark about like, say the next night. This one is for '69 completists. If you're point blank to '69, start with Feb 27 and Mar 2 (or say, 4/27).

1st Set = C
Overall = 2 1/2 Stars

SOURCES: This miller.119628 is the best source to come along. The pops were removed, and hasn't previously been available in full.

Subject: Great Show/Recorder
As the subject says ... and also thanks for all involved in being able to share this.

Of note: In the set list the end of the show should read:
Cryptical Envelopement-> Drums-> The Other One-> Turn On Your Love Light.
... as they never do go back into Cryptical.

Subject: Sloppy '69
Nice sound quality, particularly for 1969. Many of the recordings from which can be dull or muddy.

Unfortunately this performance is rather sloppy and poorly executed. There's not much compelling music here, other than a half-decent performance of The Other One. (93 its)

Edit: Slowed down in late '69? Check out 12/28/69 for slowed down Folkhippy you stupid fuck!

The writing is not exactly on the wall when it comes to the Dave's Picks subscription. The Road Trips series was offered as a subscription towards the end in the past two years, and nothing as happened to our Archive SBDs. Sure, GDP will continue to select shows for remaster and release, and yes Charlie Miller probably got this tape sounding as good as it gets (in many cases his tapes have sounded better than official HDCD release), but this will not be a bad thing. There may be a time when some shows will be unavailable due to out-of-print status, but according to Dave Lemieux, all officially released shows will be available for Internet download eventually (and yes, there will be a fee associated with that). I am a Dave's Picks subscriber and while I would prefer getting things for free, I know that my money is going to further the Vault. Future releases and discoveries will depend on fan financial support. I do wish that they would permit the half-released shows to remain on the Archive since the whole show is taken down after official release of only a part, making some music inaccessible.

Also, the Cliff Hucker doesn't quite get the performances from the latter half of '69. All of them sound a little slowed down at first, but you will see that they are playing with an intentionally "loose vibe." After all, the night after this is a Dick's Picks release. This is some of the best playing of their fall/winter tour.

With the 'Daves Picks' subscription thing the writing is on the wall. Listen and download as much as you can folks. Soon all the SBDs will be only available by subsrcition or purchase.

Subject: TO DMT
Do you think this show deserves one star? If not, than what you are doing makes no sense. To those curious about this shows quality, CM has done another masterful job. Dont let DMT low rating scare you away from listening to this show
Reviewer: Dylan M - - April 7, 2012
Subject: Cut the crap DMT!
This show is a beautiful sounding CM remaster that does the performance and original recording higher justice than any of the other copies. How wonderful of a time that it must have been to see the Dead. In the height of their youthful energy yet damaged from the tattered scene after Altamont. This is before the Dead transitioned into their Folsky-Cowboy stage but after the major psychedelia perpetuated earlier that year.

Pigpen is killing it all over. Every Pig performance this night kills!

Thanks CM. We won't let a few people's rotten attitude trump all the wonderful things you are dong for these recordings! cheers.

UPDATE 2012/4/7: DMT, people can still listen to and experience pretty much any circulating GD SBD through, minus official released. Luckilly theres a big community out there else wise where we can get ahold of removed shows. It was great before 2005 when anybody could click once, and download any full live Dead SBD recording. Still, your attitude is not appreciated. When you give one star ratings on these updated pages, you are disrespecting the hard work of people like Charlie Miller and Hunter Seamons who are upgrading these precious recordings out of their own free time with no compensation other than the satisfaction of their hard work.

Your not making a statement about Rhino Records here, you're insulting people's donated time to an online library. Quit giving one star ratings on all the new Charlie Miller upgrades. It's obnoxious and disrespectful to the community at
